We can call 3nd as a 'Delicate Noiseteller' for any sake, can't we?

Cannot mention about them with a word 'noisy' - they play willfully and pleasantly in the midst of exploded noises by Post / Math production. Such a pleasure and flexibility can recall us loveliness and dearness around them. Their ensemble is very simple and basic, with guitars, a bass, drums - actually, these instruments can let us imagine little grace, beauty, or mellowness. But so novel and mysterious they can get something positive for warmth and kindness. From the very start, twin-guitar sounds are very delightful and 'percussive' like percussion, with an eccentric but steady rhythm section. All instruments are popping, tapping and flapping all the studio around, maybe. The second "China" has charming tension and exotic sensation, by a chopping guitar solo and a danceable drumming. A quirk of sound 'n' noise launchers, great taste. "SSK" and "Filter In Dust" are serious post rock songs full of psychedelic fuzz-guitar noises. Oppositely, "Nemuru (Sleepin')" and "Midroll" are slow-down-tempo and dark-heavy-muddy river flows. Heavy and noisy guitar sounds recallin' us a wake of the feedback flood by traditional Japanese psychedelic rock scene.

And the key element of 3nd should be in the fifth track "Lotus" or the last "Waltz For Lilly", a dizzy fuzzy noisy but fresh bobbish beats by the quartet. Look and we can certainly feel they be much enjoyable. On stage, they may play with smiling fully and laughing loudly. What a honest outfit they are, I'm always sure.
